There's a lot of information

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2020

There's a lot of information on this majestic ship's fate, Parson. Is it your presumed take on maritime history, or has her fate been reliably recorded somewhere? I like your style of writing when composing this type of descriptive poetry,...

Posted on Sat, 23 May 2020

Wow Rachel! Another side of your talented writing ability, and of you yourself, shown here. Using creative writing, especially poetry, to catharsise emotions of all types usually feels an unburdening process. But, on the other hand it easily goes...

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2020

Great poem, much enjoyed, Rachel, even if not fully understood, but I concur with all that's been said about its effect on other readers. Here, children that do well in spite of a bad start in home situation, are called Dandelion Kids (...

My take on your new extended

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

My take on your new extended riverbank story Ld:

Presumably, Andy would teach you knots too - useful - stops you drifting away and over and too far beyond the weir(d), or even worse, over the dam(n) good it is, Ld, intriguing read and I like this new floating style of yours. Yes, spinning solo...

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

Houseboats, alcoholature, and esoterica do not mix well moored by the willows LD! You have this skill of being able to let just few words paint an action picture of cartoon magnitude. I suspect though this is saying a lot more than I enjoy...

Struggling with a mutual

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020

Struggling with a mutual tendency towards the spiritual, of course I would want to read your work too Theresa, and it's a rewarding mouth-watering journey that leaves a whole host of tastes in the palate! For me, use of colours, spices, and...

Posted on Mon, 11 May 2020

I did think this was a much thumbed photo carried around that's fading with the years, but not sure whether to trust my impressions any more. I've no qualms with referring to your work as wonderful poetry, for it's a joy to read and feel the...

Posted on Fri, 08 May 2020

A treat to read as usual, Rachel. Yes, strands hardening before breezes turns their traps into visual patterns, for dust is the spider's worst enemy, lucky they're sticky on hard contact and entangle a struggling meal! Strange how they have a...

Sorry for the delay in answering Kristi, long shifts just now. I looked up that remarkable woman, Jill Price, with her episodic memory not dissipating, or condensing, into larger semantic descriptions, as it does for most of us, that is, for ...
